Kate Upton Nude As A Playboy Bunny? Aspiring Movie Actress May Think Twice

Will we ever see Kate Upton nude in Playboy? While we do not have a solid answer. it’s possible that Upton’s acting career was probably on her mind when she gave her recent response to that question. The above photo might be the closest thing to a Playboy bunny that we’ll ever see from Kate.

In a related report by The Inquisitr, Uptons apparently stick together close than boyfriends because Kate has been promoting baseball player Justin Upton for the All-Star game, while the “other” Justin did not get a mention. Speaking of Mr. Verlander, it’s possible he might be a fan of manscaping based upon Kate’s preferences in manly grooming.

Now photo shoots portraying Kate Upton naked are pretty common. She’s become famous for gracing the covers of Sports Illustrated, and the body paint issues were especially popular, never mind when leaked photos showed Kate Upton topless on a horse. But as the model became more popular and Kate’s movie career began to take off, it became apparent that Upton was wearing more clothing, not less.

So, what do we make of Kate Upton’s Playboy non-answer?

“I never like to say never. Because there are circumstances that I could do pretty much anything if it inspires me and if I think that it’s cool at the time. But right now, at this point in my career, I’m not doing Playboy.”

At this point, Kate is only 22 years old, having celebrated her birthday fairly recently. Her star continues to rise in Hollywood, and there were even rumors she was being considered as a Bond Girl for the upcoming James Bond 24 movie. She really does not need to be in Playboy, and it’s apparent she does not want her completely naked body being put on display because she even sued a website for its fake nude photos.

The other question is whether or not going full nude for Playboy would hurt her chances at becoming a movie star. For example, Farrah Fawcett’s nude modeling supposedly helped her movie career. Jenny McCarthy’s Playboy appearance also jump-started her ability to land roles as an actress, not just in photo shoots. Jane Fonda, Faye Dunaway, Shirley MacLaine, and Helen Hunt all won Best Actress Oscars for movies in which they did nude scenes.

But if you look at the list of Kate Upton movies (Tower Heist, Three Stooges, and The Other Woman) it seems obvious she’s not interested in making her body the focus. While Kate is obviously not afraid of nudity, the issue is mostly about protecting her image. If she desires to be known for certain types of roles, then she may want to avoid dressing as a Playboy bunny anytime soon.

If Playboy had Kate Upton nude in its magazine, do you think it would hurt or hinder her acting career?
